Instagram for beginners

Instagram is an image based social network. One typical feature of all uploaded images is, that they are all square shaped and often added with a special color filter. Every image can be tagged just like Twitter posts with hashtags. That makes it easier for users to find images with a special content or topic. A lot of our fans add the hashtag #xbionic to every image they upload. These pictures can also get likes or comments from other users. Here is an example photo from our own stream:

For a better usability you may also use Statigram at your desktop computer, it is an Instagram web viewer for a better experience and handling in a web browser. Instagram was primarily developed for mobile devices to take pictures and upload them instantly. Statigram is the better way to browse and search through the images at Instagrams at home on your PC or Mac. Here is the same image from above displayed at Statigram:

Welcome to X-PERIENCE – the new X-BIONIC® blog

IMG_4869

X-BIONIC® joined a lot of online social networks in the past few years. It’s a part of our daily business and helps us to keep connected with you – our fans and customers. It offers a new kind of communication: direct, visible and just in time. Social networks are still a developing story and grow day by day.

Therefore we decided to create this blog to merge all our social media streams in one place. Another intention of this blog was to show our social media content to everyone who is not part of a social network yet. It is a nice opportunity to get our messages viral and to show all our activities in one place: here!

We will also bring exclusive news and views behind the scenes of X-BIONIC® to you and interesting news and trends from the social media world.

But there is still another project, we want to realize with this blog – stay tuned to find out, what that feature will be – we will announce it in a few weeks! If you have an idea, what this could be, just write your hint in the comments below.

X-BIONIC® TeamRide

In April 2013 we started our first TeamRide ever. We planned this event to ride with our fans near Wollerau. The meeting point in Pfaeffikon (SZ) at the train station was a good place to gather and so we met there at the 14th of April 2013 at 10 am. The weather was perfect and the sun kept shining the during whole tour. The ride was planned for 105 kilometers, but we also offered a shorter version of 65 kilometers.

After our start we went over the Lake of Zuerich to Rapperswil and kept riding along the shore directly to Zurich. There we found a good place at the harbor for our break after the first 35 kilometers  After this nice relaxing break the second part was also along the southern shore at the lake straight back to Pfaeffikon. Some of the team had ridden enough and signed off, but a small group of five kept going for 40 more kilometers around the east side of the lake.

Finally everyone was happy with the tour and we will keep this event alive. If you like to join the next TeamRide too, check our Facebook page and stay up to date for the next tour or just  write an email to us. See you!
